* Phil bomb to start
%--TLEO 6:15 anomalie in right channel (RC) resulting in brief reduction
For all of these times listed, I pasted the left channel
into the right channel to remove some heavy static which sounded like it
was caused by a loose cord for the right channel mics. Some of the spans are
so brief that it is hard to notice. Some are longer, and I debated whether
the fixes helped. In the end, I felt mono was better than static blips.
You can still hear static in the RC in some places to get an idea of
what the blimishes were.
4:24-4:27 then slight hiss in RC, 4:33, 4:49-4:50,
4:57-4:58, 4:59-5:01, 5:02, 5:08-5:09, 5:10, 5:50-5:55, 6:15-6:46
+--Ramble on Rose 0:24-0:32, 4:09-4:10 (again, times are LC > RC paste)
^--Promised Land 0:51 (LC > RC paste) <<1:19 NASTY CUT!!!>>
&--He's Gone 9:23 (LC > RC paste)
@--Jam 0:38 There is a nice jam coming out of He's Gone which has a small
cut as it starts to pick up. It sounds like they just jump right in
but there was clearly a little to the jam. They tease the other one a bit.

Great recording - levels too high
I cannot say enough about this show. It is simply stellar, and one of the top 5 of the 100+ I have attended since 1970.
Beware this recording, the volume level is real high, and will blow your speakers if you aren't careful. Just start low. That said, this tape captures the mid and high end of the performance in a way that is rarely heard. Were I a student of Garcia's guitar this tape would be indispensable; like the "shure57-stevenson" tape of the 8May77 Cornell show. Not the full sound, but still amazing to listen to.
This show is one for the ages, and I will consider myself very lucky always for being there. This tape, and the Pietro tape (in particular) can show you what I mean.
The grade here is for the tape itself, the Show is a solid "7"!

Almost April Fools
I was at this show. Drove down from Knoxville. You will note that it was three days after April Fools Day. I didn't have a ticket and picked one up in the parking lot. When I got to the door, my ticket was taken and I was informed that it was a bum ticket. I got turned away while my buddies went on in. Well, I walked over to a concrete utility box in the courtyard between the Omni and the CNN tower and sat down to bemoan my fate. A few minutes later, I was somehow compelled to get swept up in a crowd that was blowing by. The next thing I knew, one of the large plate glass windows that separates the Omni concourse from the courtyard had been broken and I was being pushed inside. Of course, there was a plethora of security guards headed in my general direction. I pasted a wide grin on my face and danced away, just another tie-dyed, wild eyed hippy. It turned out to be April Fools all over again.

Who cares about the glitches.
What a great show.The recording is first rate.The glitches do not detract from the powerful performance in my opinion.Who needs a soundboard when you get to listen to a recording like this?I don't think these guy's are truely thanked enough.
I will thank you for this recording.Super sound.I first listened through my headphones and I had to listen until the end.This show smokes.I had to pour water on my ears after listening.
If you do not have this show,then you need it.Thats right,you need this show.Thanks guy's.Peace to all..............
